Daughters of Cornwall by Fern Britton

The Blurb

The new book from the Sunday Times bestselling author.


The Great War is over, and Clara Carter has boarded a train bound for Cornwall – to meet a family that would once have been hers. But they must never discover her secret….


Caroline has spent years trying to uncover the lies buried in her family history. And once she arrives in Cornwall, the truth finally seems to be in reach. Except with storm clouds gathering on the horizon, Caroline soon learns that some secrets are best left hidden…

The Author

Fern’s warmth, humour, empathy and compassion have made her incredibly popular and she has become a much sought after presenter.

In 2008 Fern released her autobiography Fern: My Story, which was a huge bestseller.

Fern is deeply committed to a number of charities, in particular those working with and for women, children and childbirth.


What a beautiful novel. A story about people, love, hope , trust and the lies that divide and bind them. Things that don’t only affect the here and now, but have effects on future lives of the people around them. It’s written from multiple viewpoints which draws you in deeply from the beginning. This is a fantastic read. Sensitive, honest and this story will stay with me for a long time. Possibly because it shines a light on the frequently unspoken topic of babies born in wartime and their fates. This delved deep and I’d recommend it to anyone for an interesting, emotional and informative read.

Hi and welcome to my new blog. I’m reading and reviewing the books I read, after a long break I realised just how much I missed reviewing. I’ve been a voracious reader since childhood and I don’t imagine that changing. 
If you would like me to read and review a book you’re bringing out, please feel free to contact me. If it’s not my type of book I won’t waste your time by agreeing. I don’t promise 5 star reviews, and I know authors do appreciate feedback , but I can only promise an honest review. 
 Genres I love include crime, thriller, tartan noir is a stand out favourite. I do also enjoy horror, and other fiction/non fiction as they take my fancy. 
Please feel free to tell me if you have any recommendations for books to read whether they are already out or just about to. Reviews will be published on Twitter and Goodreads. Contact me here on the blog or email me at booksnbanter1@gmail.com 
Many thanks 
for visiting! Angi
